Summer's End

I hope you have enjoyed your summer.  We have been busy here with swim lessons the past two weeks and a fabulous week long vacation to Orcas Island which is part of the San Juan Islands.

Sewing has definitely taken a back seat these last weeks of summer.
I did manage to post a photo every day [so far : ) ] for the SewPhotoHop on Instagram.  Sponsored by House of Pinheiro, she posted a theme per day and asked that participants posted a photo with the hashtag #SewPhotoHop  
The are my favorite images from the month.   

I also have posted a few photos on Instagram with the hashtag #BariJColor.  Bari J designs fabrics for Art Gallery fabrics and has a lovely Instagram feed.  Every week she picks a different color and asks IG'ers to post a photo. It has been fun taking color themed photos with some beloved items of mine.

I started an embroidery project with Summer inspired colors which was great since it is portable and easy to take to the pool.

Though I have missed sewing I have enjoyed the time spent with my boys.  
They are growing up so fast : )



  1. The way you photograph always makes me want to 'jump in' the picture! They are so inviting. Your son is adorable too! Thank you for all the inspiration you give to our quilting community.

  2. Great pictures, but I'm in love with your little green hand crank.


Thanks for stopping by!
I love to read your comments - they make my day!!
